Fill in empty spaces with glue. Pour on glitter, tap off excess. Repeat with entire image. You can put additional glue and glitter on top of dried glitter. Such as dots or lines.
3. 2 tone glitter image. Cut double side sticky paper a tiny bit smaller than your stencil. Stick that onto a piece of card-stock cut a tiny bit bigger than your stencil. Rub bar soap on the back side of the stencil. Brush off any soap crumbs. Put the stencil, soap side down, onto the sticky paper. Put stencil sandwich over coffee filter. Sprinkle one color of glitter, tap off excess, pour back into bottle. Press a piece of paper or cs that has been rubbed with an Emboss Buddy over the glitter and press.

Mount as you would any stamped image onto a card front.

Pour 2nd color of glitter past the 1st color and over top of the 1st color. Tap off excess. Repeat with more colors.
5. Glittering transparent sheets with stamped image on. Rub embossing buddy over the back side, dull side, stamped side, or use brush.

You may mix your own favorite color by adding ½ teaspoon iridescent powders or metallic liquid acrylic paints with 2 tablespoon translucent paste, this mixture will have a milky look but dries glossy and iridescent. For a more opaque and rough texture that still has a bit of glossy shine add 1 part regular embossing white paste to the iridescent translucent mixture.
